When there are four candidates and the winner happens to be my second choice I can be content that fairness has been served. Had this been a FPTP election then many more voters would have had their choices ignored.
Same old same old

Like most elections, the winner has only a third of the votes. In this case I'm sure the candidates will join forces (since they're in the same party) but Mr dix will now communicate with party members knowing that two of every three voted for someone else!
